Community Wealth Ventures, Inc. (CWV), a management consulting firm working to improve social enterprise non-profits, is posting a blog series entitled “Creating Transformational Change: Top Ten Insights.” Last week, CWV spotlighted CAHS for its commitment to data-based program evaluation. This week, CWV posted a second post praising CAHS entitled “If You Build It, The Results Will Come.”
This recent post discusses how CAHS improved, rather than faced a setback, upon implementing new evaluation techniques. CWV says that CAHS can be used as a model for other non-profits that are not yet disciplined in their data collection and program evaluation. The post read, “CAHS turned its vision of a disciplined, data-driven culture into a reality where they are recognized by local funders as a leader in the evaluation community.”
CAHS has a full time Community Research Director, Sheryl Horowitz, who completes internal evaluations and ensures CAHS retains its commitment to data discipline.
